Following continued and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, the Illinois PTA State Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel our annual Convention scheduled for April 24-25, 2020 in Naperville, IL. This was not an easy decision and we are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event. But we know it’s in the best interest of the organization and our stakeholders with the health and safety of all attendees being the priority.

The necessary business for Illinois PTA will be conducted through an electronic voting platform. These items include:

  • Adoption of the audit report,
  • Approval of the Illinois PTA budget for 2020-2021, and
  • Election of voting State Board members and members of the Board Development and Nominating Committee.
